Tucking the blouse in the midi skirt is always a good idea. It is even better if the pattern is floral! If you are feeling lazy and not in the mood for combining and getting dressed, this is a good option. Black midi and floral blouse go perfectly together. If you want to look even better, tie the knot, like in the photo above and add a nice piece of jewelry.
